Program Info

The teacher education program at Texas Woman’s University (TWU) prepares outstanding professional educators who make a difference in their communities. TWU sees educators as not only teachers, but as leaders and advocates in service to others as well. TWU students gain the professional knowledge they'll need in the classroom, along with the skills needed to help their students reach their full potential. In doing so, they open doors of opportunity for future generations — the true calling of every teacher. TWU’s support of students does not end with their graduation. Their New Teacher Academy provides mentoring and professional development for recent TWU graduates who are in the first three years of their teaching careers.

TWU does these things and more because their faculty is passionate about teaching. TWU gives future teachers the skills and tools they’ll need to help their students succeed, because they believe teaching changes lives.

Applicant Info

Texas Woman’s University believes a call to teach is a call to serve. The Teacher Education Program seeks future teachers who want to serve diverse populations and communities. TWU welcomes future educators who not only are driven to help their students succeed, but also want to support teachers who are new to the field. The Teacher Education Program at Texas Woman’s University produces approximately 525 new teachers each year, and TWU’s students typically achieve an overall pass rate of 96% on the state teacher exam.

TWU is a public university that offers the student support and small class sizes traditionally expected at a private university. TWU believes in a quality education that is affordable and accessible, which is why they offer more than $15 million in scholarships annually, including many just for first-year students. Most students are able to maintain their scholarships for up to four years. The average cost of attending TWU is $17,700, which includes books, in-state tuition and fees and room and board for a student taking 15 credit hours in the fall and spring. Approximately 85% of Texas Woman’s students receive financial aid, which can include scholarships, grants, loans and part-time campus jobs.

Program Hallmarks

  • Hands-On Experience

    TWU knows that until you see something in real life, classroom lessons don’t always register. Texas Woman’s University offers hands-on teaching experiences before you set foot in a classroom. TWU believes in providing hands-on experiences — through the TeachLIVE lab, which enables students to “practice” teach on realistic, responsive avatars and gives them the opportunity to analyze what works and what doesn’t before they begin teaching actual students, or through the Summer Reading Program, which draws children from throughout the community to a weekly session with books and crafts selected and supervised by TWU students.

  • Preparation for Diverse Populations

    Classrooms are a reflection of their communities, with diversity in culture, languages and socioeconomic status. Whether TWU students seek to teach all subjects in the lower grades, specialize in a subject such as math, science or English, or become certified in special education, bilingual education or English as a Second Language, TWU will prepare teachers to meet the needs of all students.

  • Mentoring & Coaching

    When you’re ready to begin student teaching, TWU’s Professional Development Center will pair you with a school where you will observe and work with a highly accomplished teacher. In this role, you become an important and integral part of the host school system under the direction of a certified classroom teacher and a university supervisor in area school districts. The Professional Development Center maintains relationships with schools and related education settings for student teaching placements in early childhood through grade 12. All Texas Woman’s placements go through the PDC to ensure that proper procedures are followed for district placements.

  • Commitment to Improvement

    TWU Teacher Education graduates as first-year teachers have the highest retention rate among 56 universities in Texas served by the Center for Research, Evaluation and Advancement of Teacher Education (CREATE), according to Performance Analysis for College Education (PACE) data. When analyzed by school levels, TWU graduates as first-year teachers also have the highest retention rates across all public elementary, middle and high school levels. TWU believes this shows that its graduates not only are well-prepared for the classroom, but that mentorship beyond graduation plays an important role in teacher retention. TWU faculty continue to mentor their students after graduation, both individually and through the New Teacher Academy.
